EARLY MORNING OPENINGS & SENSORY FRIENDLY EVENINGS

EARLY MORNING OPENINGS

The Intrepid Museum offers Early Morning Openings and Sensory Friendly Evenings for individuals with autism eight times a year. By opening its doors early for children (ages 3-18) and their families or keeping the doors open at night for teens (14+) and adults, participants can experience the Museum in a sensory-friendly environment. In the morning, educators lead short, interactive tours designed for all learners, as well as drop-in art activities and structured social/play opportunities. In the evening, specific areas of the Museum are open for self-exploration.

Upcoming Programs:

Winter/Spring 2021 programs are now virtual. Virtual programs take place over Zoom and include at-home activity packets.

Programs are free but registration is required. To register, please follow the registration link. Registration typically opens one month in advance. If you have any questions, please contact
